Smarty Pants Childminding

The most important thing is that children are happy, enjoy the activities that we do and develop to their full potential.



Proprietor : Sally Maidment

I really enjoy working with children and have been working in Childcare and Education for the past 15 years, both as a childminder and as a qualified infant teacher.

My name is Sally and I am a professional Ofsted registered childminder living in Woolston who provides high quality care and learning for every child. I have fifteen years of experience of working with children both as a childminder and as an infant school teacher. I live with my husband Pete and 15 year old daughter Jodie and we have two friendly cats and a budgie. I am registered to provide care for six children under the age of eight and an additional two children under the age of 12. This can include full-time, part-time, early mornings, local school pick-ups, after school and school holidays.


I am a member of the NCMA and belong to a Childminding Network Children Come First Quality Assurance Scheme. This means that I am accredited and can provide free pre-school education for children up to 15 hours each week. I can also offer 2 year funding.
